Google's "big announcement" for tomorrow is an updated Google TV app.

Like most people on the internet, Google’s cryptic teaser got us wondering which exciting possibility was going to come true, but it turns out that the big reveal is for — no, not a new device, and not Google TV’s promised annual software update — a new YouTube app for Google TV. Google’s claiming the updated app is faster, with smoother navigation, and a new feature called Discover that lets you browse videos by category. It also has new channel pages, which make it easier to switch between related videos or find more videos from the same user. The new app looks nice, but next time we could do without all the buildup.
